Our flagship Model No.1 Titanium is fast, elegant, and extremely lightweight. Equally suited for fast commutes to the office, long rides on country roads, or a credit-card trek across Europe.
Reviewers have named Model No.1 one of the most beautiful bicycles ever made. It’s the result of Paul Budnitz’ obsession with creating the world’s greatest city bicycles — a combination of high-tech design and traditional craftsmanship that make No.1 both quick handling and smooth riding on city streets.
This is also our lightest bicycle, weighing in at as little as 18.5 pounds. Because of its shorter wheelbase, model No.1 handles very nimbly and accelerates quickly from a stop. It’s also comfortable, especially when paired with our titanium riser bar that puts your hands in the ideal position for comfort and control.
The handmade No.1 twin-tube titanium cantilever frame weighs just 3.5 pounds and is engineered to absorb road shock. Titanium is also extremely durable — it will never rust or corrode, and small scratches can be easily brushed out, keeping this bicycle looking new for many years.
Carbon belt drive is lightweight, silent and requires no grease — so you will never get your pants dirty. Your choice of single speed, or clean and quiet internal transmission.
Features our handmade Budnitz titanium fork, stem, ergonomic riser handlebars, seatpost and badges. Built with some of the best USA-made components, including a titanium Chris King headset, Paul Components Love levers, daVinci cranks, and White Industries hubs.
Comes standard with 1.25-inch (35C) evolution-rubber tires from Germany. Options include wood or alloy fenders, titanium racks, saddles from Brooks of England, our own high-tech locking system, the world’s smallest brass bell, and more.
Built by hand in the USA to last a lifetime.
